• Using Wheat Distillers in Dairy Rations
    WCDS Advances in Dairy Technology (2008) Volume 20: 69-78, 2008
    Dairy and beef producers are starting to hear a lot about the potential of
    distiller’s grains and other byproducts of the bio-fuel industries as feed
    sources for their cattle.

  • The Nutritive Value of Thin Stillage and Wet Distillers’ Grains for Ruminants: A Review
    A. F. Mustafa, J. J. McKinnon and D. A. Christensen
    Alcohol production from cereal grains involves the conversion of starch to alcohol through enzymatic hydrolysis and yeast fermentation. The fermentation of cereal grains for alcohol production has been detailed by Ingledew (1993). At the end of the fermentation process, alcohol is distilled by steam and the residues (whole stillage) are usually pressed to separate thin stillage from distillers’ grains.

  • Evaluation of a Pelleted Barley Product for Growing and Finishing Cattle
    J. McKinnon, L. Williams, V. Racz, D. Christensen and Brad Wildeman
    Barley grain is favored in Canada as a cereal grain for several reasons. Most importantly it provides cattle with a relatively inexpensive source of energy and protein. Cattle fed barley are widely known to produce a carcass that has excellent eating quality, including a hard, white fat content. Canadian and international consumers find the meat to be very tender and appealing. The fact that barley is a non-GMO grain is also very important to consumers around the world.

  • Limit feeding a high grain barley-based diet to backgrounding and finishing cattle in western Canada 
    Sharon A. Klinger
    A series of experiments were conducted over 2 years to study the effects of limit feeding a high energy diet to growing and/or finishing cattle on performance, carcass characteristics, fecal output, chewing behaviour and nutrient digestibility.
